Pastel Plaids

It’s safe to say that plaid is this season’s “it” look. From clothing to blankets to tablewear you can find this trend just about anywhere and everywhere. Target’s recent Adam Lippes plaid collection was both affordable and stylish. If you didn’t have a chance to check the collection out, many pieces are on markdown now, so hurry! You could even snag yourself a container of mouthwash dressed in the popular print. Lol! While I love all the classic red, navy, and green plaids, bringing in an unexpected color combo, such as this blush sweater is a great addition to your wardrobe. The sweater can be worn year round, but paired with boots and layered over a chambray button down, it’s a pretty pastel winter look. I linked a few of my favorite pastel plaid’s for y’all to check out!

// Love this pastel plaid scarf from Anthro //

// Adorable and inexpensive poncho option here //

// This Vivienne Westwood leather clutch is adorable at $180 //

// This sweater option is the same designer and print as the one I’m wearing, but with a different cut. Paired with over the knee boots this look would be gorgeous //

// Lucky Brand always makes a great classic button down and this one is perfectly pastel. Pair it with a chunky scarf, fur vest, and boots, and you’ve transformed it to a winter look //

Camel Vest

Vests are trending in a major way this fall, and I adore this faux fur camel vest found at Marshalls. It’s a great transitional piece that can take your summer dress into fall. Paired over this flowy eyelet dress, the look remains chic but with a touch of boho.

Also perfect for casual wear. With a neutral color like tan, the vest can be worn over just about anything. I can’t find this exact vest anywhere, but I’ve linked a few fabulous options at various price points and textures. And, can I just say my little man is rocking his plaid vest and boots so cute. Love that little pumpkin.

Option 1 – with the faux fur lining // Option 2 – perfect if you like a knit. Same one available here in a size M & L for only $66 // Option 3 – jacket vest look // Option 4 – major splurge but a gorgeous leather option 

Denim Jumpsuit

Happy Saturday friends! I recently attended a Ben Harper concert with friends, and this acid wash jumper was the perfect look for the night’s festivities. I love being able to rock an outfit I wouldn’t normally wear chasing two toddlers around. It’s also a great transitional piece. I can’t wait to wear it with tights, a vest, and boots! Although this one isn’t available, I linked a few great options, at the end of this post. XoXo

Summer Vacation Style

This summer was especially fun, and not because we went anywhere extravagant. Nope, all our vacations were kept in Cali. What made it so fun? My kids! They are three and five now. While I adore the baby phase for its sweetness, I love seeing them as toddlers racing around the beach, building sand castles, and chasing the waves. They are old enough to get the most out of summer vacations, and it’s pure joy to watch.

Moving on! Today’s post is all about style for those summer vacations. Here are a few of my favorite looks from our most recent family getaway.

I’m a true believer in mixing high and low pieces when it comes to fashion. Truth – I hadn’t shopped at Forever 21 in a few years, but after a recent stop at the trendy store, I couldn’t believe I came home with five fantastic pieces. So, it’s back on my radar. Featured today is this flowy embroidered Forever 21 Top, and it’s only $23. I also picked up two great summer dresses, that I’ll share as soon as San Francisco gives me a non jeans day. Beat it gloom!

Shop the rest of the look. Similar Tassel Necklace. Similar Vigoss Jeans. These Vince Camuto Booties are mostly sold out, but a few sizes here and here. I’m obsessed with the medium height, comfort, and versatility of these shoes. So, if your size is available snatch them up! Congrats to all my local peeps on a Golden State Warriors Championship! After 40 years, we did it.. and might I say, with style and dignity!
